We then moved into the Old City through the Lions Gate, and made our way along the famous 'Via Dolorosa', a narrow street through the city thought to be the route along which Jesus carried his cross. Marked along the street are the stations of the cross, but it is not easy to be still as it is very crowded with other tour groups and street vendors. We took this opportunity to find a cafe selling falafel for lunch, before proceeding along the path to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The Church is a fascinating place, but completely full of people, many of them queuing to reach the very heart of the church. We managed to find a quiet side chapel, and spent a couple of minutes in there. It would have been wonderful to spend more time in many of these places, but there was so much to see!

After dinner that evening Yoel and Laura from Shoresh took a group out onto the city rooftops for a time of testimony and sharing. A very busy day!
